Main Characters

    In General
From left to right: Eggman, Earthworm Jim, Tails, and Sonic. Not Pictured: Knuckles, Gilius Thunderhead, Kirby, Mother Brain, Soniqua & Link.
  • Adaptational Jerkass: None of them have the heroic traits of their canon videogame counterparts.
  • Amusing Injuries/Butt Monkeys: They all suffer through humiliating and painful situations.
  • Breaking the Fellowship: The majority of Season 4 has Sonic, Tails, Eggman, and Jim split up. Sonic is back to doing odd jobs due to being broke again, Tails is now rich and famous (and also the Arc Villain of the season), while Eggman and Jim are partying it up in Contra. They come back together near the end of the season but it’s not until “Joust” where they finally act as a group again.
  • Failure Is the Only Option: Whenever they become successful, expect them to eventually lose.
  • The Team: It takes a while for it to be established, the main "team" is formed in the Season 2 finale consisting of:
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: They can't stand each other, but by Season 5, they can't even bear to not hang out with each other.

    Sonic the Hedgehog
Voiced by: Micheal William

The main character of the show who is always looking for a job but fails almost all of the time. He is really lazy and rude but there are several moments where he does feel like he's accomplished something.

  • Abusive Parents: Initially wanted to kill Soniqua off. Subverted when he found out that she helps him out in threatening situations. That being said, he did successfully wipe his and Lucca's children out of existence by replacing himself with Eggman.
  • All Men Are Perverts: Very much, considering he can barely be in the presence of a female without wanting to bang them, or asking them to call him later on.
  • Ascend to a Higher Plane of Existence: Sonic's fate. Subverted by the fact that Sonic eventually gets bored and gives up his position.
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: Many of his problems stem from his inability to pay attention. For example, his response to being given the keys to a dying bar is to go on a long monologue which results in him concluding that he wants to watch Tombstone.
  • Baleful Polymorph: Usually against his will. In Season 1, the Eggplant Wizard turns him into, surprise, an eggplant. Later on, damage of the space-time continuum also turns him into Wario.
  • Butt-Monkey: Mainly in the first season, and especially Season 4.
  • Broke Episode: Inverted; most of the series is about Sonic being broke. In Season 3, he becomes rich off of mafia money, before losing it all. He becomes rich again in Season #6 due to time traveling, but gets broke again once the universe starts collapsing due to the gang messing with the space-time continuum too much, forcing Sonic to reset everything to avoid dying.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: A number of times, such as in Tapper, Burger Time, Atari, and Star Craft Sonic is shown to be actually competent at his job. However, his short attention span and low tolerance for other people mars things.
  • Cerebus Retcon: Inverted. Most of the series makes Sonic look almost like a borderline murderous sociopath who recklessly murders anyone in his way. Then season 8 firmly establishes that most characters can respawn as long as they died in their game world (meaning that most of the characters Sonic had killed are likely back to life).
  • Chick Magnet: The amount of women that is infatuated with Sonic or has sex with him is ridiculous.
  • Desperately Looking for a Purpose in Life: By Season 7, Sonic has been a mafia boss, a movie star, went to space, traveled through time, became rich, died, came back to life and done everything he has ever wanted to do. Thus, he drags everybody along to find the Creator, so he can know that there's still some greater purpose for him.
  • Dragon Ascendant: After spending the second half of Season 2 working for Mario, he takes over Mario’s mob operations after killing him in the season finale.
  • The Ditz: Not exactly in the traditional sense but, Sonic isn't what you would call a smart person.
  • Everyone Has Standards: Subverted in terms of killing; he is disturbed by the murderous tendencies of Kirby and Dig Dug, but this has more to do with Early Installment Weirdness, seeing as how Sonic has no problem with murdering other people himself in later episodes.
  • Extreme Omnisexual: While he does have his limits, Sonic has banged a wide variety of characters throughout the series, ranging from ordinary humans, to the transgender Birdo, to a pulsating brain monster.
  • Fallen-on-Hard-Times Job: Every job he ever got throughout all of Seasons 1, 2, and 4 he's only doing due to going broke, despite once being a major figure in gaming.
  • Fatal Flaw: His inability to concentrate and lack of tolerance for other people.
  • Fiction 500: He becomes rich after going back in time. He gets a fancy house, luxury cars, and more! Only for a short while though.
  • Have I Mentioned I Am Gay?: Often tries to claim that he's gay as an excuse to get out of awkward situations, such as not wanting to go out with Amy or murder innocents with Kirby.
  • The Hero Dies: In Season 6, after getting kidnapped by Mario. Not that it lasts very long.
  • Hidden Depths: He's actually pretty good at boxing, even nearing beating Mike Tyson himself!
  • Hookers and Blow: His idea of "happiness" apparently consists of nothing but crack and pornography.
    Maxwell: That's pretty depressing man...
    Sonic: Yeah I'm a fucking mess.
  • Hypocritical Humor: Sonic says he doesn't want to bang Candy Kong saying she's basically "Donkey Kong in a bikini." Much later in Season 7, Sonic has no problems banging Wreck-It Roxanne who is literally female Ralph! (especially since Sonic hates his guts)
  • Idiot Hero: While others (usually Tails or Eggman) are on occasion to blame, nearly all of his failed jobs stem from his inability to stay on task or care. He also drinks lead on occasion for no apparent reason.
  • Jerkass: His low tolerance for other people and drug abuse certainly make him unpleasant to be around.
    • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Regardless, he does have a softer side, which he occasionally shows to Tails, Soniqua, and his other friends.
  • Mistaken for Gay: Mega Man apparently thought him and Tails were dating.
  • Only Sane Man: Sonic has been occasionally shown to be this, particularly in the presence of Thunderhead or some of the lesser characters.
  • Pet the Dog:
  • Really Gets Around: He's had sex with too many women to count.
  • Riches to Rags:
    • Due to taking some bad stock tip advice from Tails (investing in Dreamcast), and spending all his other money on coke, he goes from being decently wealthy to essentially completely broke.
    • Goes from being a mob boss to being right back where he started by the end of Season 3.
  • Seen It All: He's jumped through enough games to not be surprised at most of what he sees.
  • The Stoner: Gets high off drugs multiple times throughout the series.
  • Super Speed: Yeah, no shit. However, he's shown to have problems when it comes down to how far he can run.
    Sonic: Ow, crampin' here, ah.
    Mario: Not as fast you used to be, eh Sonic?
    Sonic: Yeah, I was planning to get to the gym on Monday... after you kill me.
  • The Last of These Is Not Like the Others:
    Tails: The good news is I might be able to hook you up with a couple jobs to help you get by.
    Sonic: Cool, what do we got? New Sonic game? Sonic cartoon? Sonic death metal album? I don't give a shit, I'll do whatever.
  • Trigger Happy: A major reason why he kills so many people.
  • Too Dumb to Live: As a mob boss, the first thing he does is get alcohol poisoning, food poisoning, sun poisoning, and lead poisoning.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Downplayed in that he still remained a jerk, but his attitude was notably improved to a degree in Seasons 6 and 7.
  • Villain Protagonist: Kills others for reasons of varying pettiness. Becomes an extreme example in The finale of Season 4. It could also be said that most of the problems in the series are caused by Sonic himself.

    Miles "Tails" Prower
Voiced by: Mike Parker

Sonic's put-upon sidekick and the show's Straight Man. While clearly smarter than most of his company, his inability to lead situations and his bossiness earns the ire of people around him.

  • Adaptational Dumbass: He claims to be not much of a tech guy despite his game counterpart being a scientist and mechanic,
  • Arc Villain: Becomes this in Season 4 after blowing up all of Sonic's money, which leads to him being the rich one.
  • The Bet: Regularly bets against himself and his friends since he knows they never win anything.
  • Butt-Monkey: Beginning in Season 2, but Season 5 is the absolute low point for him. Unlike all the other seasons, however, Tails actually had it coming.
  • Character Development: He has really loosened up by Season 8. Becoming much more lax towards the gang's antics and even indulges in Sonic's immature behavior.
  • Deadpan Snarker: In response to Sonic's shenanigans.
  • Dragon-in-Chief: What he was to Sonic during his time as a mob boss, pushing him to run his new criminal empire as well as come up with plans.
  • The Dog Bites Back: In Season 4, he takes the time to mail a bomb to Sonic, as reparations for his asshole behavior.
  • Everyone Has Standards: Regardless of all the things he's done, even Tails can't find it him to shoot a dog.
  • Fiction 500: Also in Season 4, he becomes so rich he can take hot gold showers.
  • Fixing the Game: Betted against himself and his team while playing football, just so they could throw the game and make a shit-ton of money.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Temporarily becomes this in Season 5, as part of his Laser-Guided Karma for the previous season.
  • Hate Sink: His Season 4 incarnation after his Face–Heel Turn, where he becomes a huge jerk after blowing up Sonic's money and making a ton of money off of it. He ends up becoming an even bigger asshole than Sonic, which is saying a lot. Come Season 5, and he becomes a Butt-Monkey instead.
  • Jerkass: He's arguably the biggest dick among the main characters, usually acting sarcastic towards their antics and regularly insulting everyone he finds annoying. He becomes even worse in Season 4, where he loses basically all redeeming qualities.
    • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Regardless, he's always by Sonic's side (besides Season 4), and was always trying to help him out of his money issues. That and he at least attempts to be formal towards others.
  • The Lancer: To Sonic.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: After becoming a total asshole in Season 4, Tails' Butt-Monkey status ramps Up to Eleven in Season 5.
  • The Load: Eggman certainly seems to see him as one, considering he gave him "beverage duty" for the heist on Casino Zone.
  • Mission Control: Spent most of Season 1 providing jobs for Sonic.
  • Mistaken for Gay: A Running Gag involves various characters (namely Link) believing he's gay. Though Crash Bandicoot thought he was bisexual.
  • Mr. Exposition: See above.
  • Noodle People: In Season 6, temporal shenanigans causes his limbs to extend to large lengths.
  • Not So Above It All: Tails is usually the most competent person of the main group. However, during his short tenure as Mob boss in Season 3, he is almost as bad at his job as Sonic.
  • Only Sane Man: Most particularly in Season 3. His competence since then has dipped but only to a slight degree.
  • Power Floats: After Sonic Ascend to a Higher Plane of Existence, Tails is able to fly now. But it's really impractical, since Tails can already fly.
  • Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: He has an absolute disdain for Link, simply because his flamboyant personality and tendency to not take things too seriously pisses him off.
  • The Starscream: Betrays Sonic in the Season 3 finale, though it's hard to say he didn't have a good reason.
  • Took a Level in Dumbass: He grows slightly less competent as the show goes on, but Season 8 is where he's especially low in the intelligence department in that he became more prone to openly immature behavior.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: In Season 4, when he becomes rich and becomes an even bigger asshole than Sonic.
  • Villain with Good Publicity: Again, in Season 4, Tails becomes rich and a famous celebrity. However, he also turns into a massive dick in the process. Yet despite his very obvious asshole behavior, everybody (except Sonic of course) loves him.
  • Yank the Dog's Chain: After suffering a massive Humiliation Conga in Season 5, Tails eventually loses his mansion, all of his money and reputation due to Sonic's time traveling shenanigans.

    Doctor Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik
Voiced by: Mike Parker

Long time enemy, new time friend of Sonic. After being little more than a nuisance in Season 1, Eggman comes to realize that he has nothing to do with his life if Sonic dies, and eventually becomes his friend.

  • Adipose Rex: In Season 6, he steals Sonic's time machine to fix his past mistakes. The end result is that he does win, but he also invents the incredibly-fattening Taco Sandwich and becomes an immobile blob.
  • Arc Villain: He was a recurring villain in Season 1, though downplayed in that he was more of a nuisance than an outright villain. He becomes this again in Season 8 and plays it much more straight when Eggette forces him back into villainy in a Big Bad Duumvirate.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Saves Sonic's life in the Season 2 finale.
  • Big Eater: More apparent in later seasons. He especially loves fried Mexican food.
  • Biggus Dickus: Makes one for himself in the first episode of Season 7.
  • Butt-Monkey: Not as often as Sonic or Tails, but still has his fair share of Amusing Injuries.
  • Ditzy Genius: His robot building skills mostly see use in building deep fryers and funny-looking but useless upgrades for machines. However, as seen in "Falco," he can create actual weapons if he's not distracted (he still couldn't hold off the deep fryers though).
  • Everybody Has Standards: Eggman's a Big Eater, but even he thinks eggshell tacos — tacos where the taco shells are made out of eggshells — are disgusting.
  • Face–Heel Turn: He tries taking over the world again when Eggette meets up with him, though he ultimately refuses to kill Sonic and returns to being friendly in Season 8's finale.
  • Fan Disservice: He spends most of the show without pants, though his simplistic character sprite fortunately doesn't make this entirely unpleasant. Also, his "Giant Pixel Dick" in the Season 7 premiere. Though due to universe being reduced to 8-bit graphics in the Season 7 premiere, it's fortunately not too unpleasant either.
  • Fat Bastard: Mostly in Season 1, but he still shows it later on.
  • Fat Idiot: Most of the time. His obsession with food can cloud his judgment.
  • Flanderization: Mainly his food obsession. The first four seasons implied Eggman to be a Big Eater but rarely if ever explicitly depicted him as such. Beginning around Season 5, however, it became a prominent character trait of his.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Jim seems to be the only guy in the group who genuinely likes him. Though, with time, Sonic and Tails did begin to warm up to him.
  • Gasshole: He's noticeably more flatulent in Season 8.
  • Heel–Face Turn: He performs one of these after he realizes that his life would be meaningless without Sonic.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Earthworm Jim.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's rude and idiotic, that's for sure, but he does have some nice moments here and there. In fact, in Season 8, he ultimately chooses not to murder Sonic, being reminded of their friendship and ultimately tosses his chances of becoming the new ruler of the universe.
    • He valiantly admits that Earthworm Jim is his best friend. Keep in mind that this was during season 8, where Jim was The Friend Nobody Likes and The Load.
  • Jizzed in My Pants: Sonic's death in Season 6 apparently causes him to do this.
  • The Load: Tends to be the most useless one out of the group.
  • Not That Kind of Doctor: He's a podiatrist. Downplayed, considering podiatry is a medical field.
  • Poisonous Person: When the Battletoads lick him, they die.
  • Seen It All: Like Sonic and the rest of the gang, he seeks to find a better purpose after having done everything they could think of.
  • Show Within a Show: "Cooking With Eggman".
  • Those Two Guys: After Season 1, it's rare to see him without Jim.
  • Toilet Humor: The main source of fart and poop jokes in the series. In fact, two things on his bucket list are "have someone regret NOT rebuilding the universe using Eggman shit" and "Fart in Tails's mouth."

    Earthworm Jim
Voiced by: Alex Bernstein

Earthworm Jim is one of the four main characters of the series and is a very close friend of Dr. Eggman.

  • Accidental Murder: In a fit of drunken-induced rage, Jim accidentally shoots Morty (from another Lowbrow series titled Morty Kombat) and kills him.
  • Ascended Extra: Originally just a recurring character before joining Sonic's gang.
  • Baleful Polymorph: Temporal shenanigans turn him into Yoshi.
  • Berserk Button: Make sure to get him some fucking water when he asks.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Save's Sonic's life in the Season 2 finale.
  • Butt-Monkey: Though he has it a bit easier compared to the rest of the main characters. Though it noticeably increased in Season 8, where he's turned into the No Respect Guy.
  • Closer to Earth: He is the most level headed guy of the group and is usually one of the more nicer characters.
  • The Drag-Along: While not exactly The Load, but Jim doesn't admittedly seem to have much of a reason to hang out with the Sonic gang, outside of probably just being bored.
  • The Dog Bites Back: In the final episode after his treatment in the 8th season; he attempts to be an Evil Villain by hijacking a Death Egg Robot, but Sonic turns it down saying they are not ‘one of them turns evil’ thing again.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Originally wanted to kill Sonic for stealing his suit, but later forgives him and even saves Sonic from Mario's Mob Melee.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Eggman.
  • No Respect Guy: In Season 8, everybody all of a sudden begins treating him like shit and doesn't take anything he does seriously. Not even when he hijacks a Death Egg Robot and threatens the others.
  • Not So Above It All: Ever since he spent several months surrounded by South American coke and prostitutes, he's been notably more hedonistic.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: After accidentally killing Morty, Jim wears his skin and poses as Morty so nobody would get suspicious. However, he doesn't bother to conceal his worm head, but fortunately the people he's trying to fool are Too Dumb to Live.
  • Screw Yourself: The gang was supposed to kill their time-travel-created other selves, but Jim ended up... "wormholing" his.
  • Straight Man: He's usually the foil to everybody else's antics.
  • Those Two Guys: After Season 1, it's rare to see him without Eggman.
  • With Friends Like These...: "Why do I hang out with you assholes?"


Supporting Characters

    Knuckles The Echidna 
Voiced by:' Mike Parker

Knuckles in this series has a pretty good life unlike Sonic, being the owner of Burger Time and a pretty sweet moped. However, Sonic then burns down his restaurant with a crack pipe and steals his moped for crack, in which Knuckles is forced to work at "Tre Douche." Soon afterwards, it's shown that Knuckles may not be as happy with his life as he seemed.

  • Ascended Extra: Downplayed, but Season 6 gives him the most appearances compared to the other seasons. Season 8 as well, where he along with Sonic and Tails gather their gang to take down Eggman and Eggette.
  • Beneath the Mask: Appears to be joyful, but is actually very discontent with his life and Burger Time. His depression is shown a bit more in Season 4.
  • Burger Fool: Averted at first and played straight later on; He's the owner of a Burger Time restaurant and initially appeared to be in content with it. However, Season 6 showed that he hated working at the restaurant because the chef was an asshole.
  • Driven to Suicide: After being trapped in a white void with Sonic, Tails, Eggman, and Jim. He fails.
  • 11th-Hour Ranger
  • Future Loser: Retroactive version. When Knuckles first appears, he's the owner of a burger joint that he seems pretty happy with. After Sonic burns the joint down with a crack pipe, Knuckles is then seen working at a fancy restaurant but despises it as he now has to serve, in his own words, "pretentious dickheads". Then when Sonic and company attempt to fix the timeline in Season 6, Knuckles expressed distaste at his current status in life and tries to save himself. Unfortunately for him, he fails, and by the end of the series, he's resorted to working 39 hours a week at Burger Time and remains stuck a red pixel.
  • Large Ham: Perhaps one of the show's most boisterous characters.
  • Jive Turkey: Frequently speaks in bizarre lingo that sounds like he's trying too hard to be cool.
  • Jumped at the Call: In Season 8, he gives a Rousing Speech about the importance of stopping Eggman and Eggette, whereas Sonic and Tails were content to hide at Burger Time.
  • Rhymes on a Dime: "Frying and buying!" and variations thereof.
  • Unexplained Recovery: In Season 8, he's no longer a red pixel.
  • Red Boxing Gloves: Pointed out to be wearing white boxing gloves all the time several times throughout the series.

    Mother Brain 
Voiced by: Alex Bernstein

The mother of Soniqua and an extremely horny and grotesque "mutant brain monster".

  • All Women Are Lustful: In the worst way possible.
  • Brain in a Jar: Like her Metroid counterpart, she is a giant brain monster in a giant jar, however unlike her original counterpart, she has a much different personality.
  • Brain Monster: She is a giant brain monster in that jar, she mentions that she is a mutant, however.
  • Easily Forgiven: After Sonic tries to kill Mother Brain, she forgives him after being shown "cable satellite television."
  • Explosive Breeder:
    "What do you expect I'm a mutant brain monster, I pop out kids like a god damn gumball machine."
  • Fan Disservice: Considering she's a giant, pulsating brain, this was pretty obvious.
  • Un-Entendre: Although she makes a lot of innuendos, on at least one occasion she did it by accident.
    MB: "I told [Frank} that there's always room for a giant worm in my cockpit, but it was going to cost him!"

Voiced by: Mike Parker

Sonic's and Mother Brain's daughter that was born after Sonic (intoxicatedly) had sex with Mother Brain. Mother Brain quickly gave birth to her, much to Sonic's chagrin. Sonic initially wanted to kill her off, saying that it'll prevent him from paying child support. However, after Soniqua saves Sonic from getting killed by Goro, Sonic values Soniqua (a lot more than Tails, that's for sure).

  • Ambiguous Gender: Initially, there was a running gag with characters being unable to determine Soniqua's gender. Eventually, she was confirmed to be a female.
  • Berserk Button: Soniqua will brutally murder anyone who threatens Sonic.
  • Brain Monster: Like Her Mother, she is a brain monster mixed with a hedgehog, she is brain monster/hedgehog hybrid.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Has saved Sonic from death many times.
  • Curbstomp Battle: Dishes these out to anyone that dares to fight her. The only two people not to be on the receiving end of this are Mario who outsmarted her and Eggette who tossed her into outer space.
  • Gender Equals Breed: Sonic + Mother Brain = Soniqua.
  • Honor Before Reason: Will do anything to protect her father, no matter how little Sonic cares about her.
  • I am a Humanitarian: When Mother Brain tries to have Sonic killed by sending a bunch of Metroids after him, Soniqua protects him by growing large and eating the Metroids.
  • Mama Bear: Soniqua is this to Sonic, despite being his daughter.
  • Morality Pet: To Sonic, as she's one of a few characters he doesn't treat with outright derision.
  • Nigh-Invulnerable: Almost impossible to even damage her! Soniqua has survived eating a bunch of bombs, an entire thretre exploding, and even being dipped into lava by Mario. However, she is mildly hurt by electricity.
  • No Indoor Voice: Shouts a lot.
  • Parental Neglect: Neither parent is really sure what gender she is. Sonic starts off as an Abusive Parent, but even after he improves, she still goes off to battle Pokemon by herself and spent time in hell.
  • Super Strength: Is capable of ripping people in half with no problem.
  • The Snack Is More Interesting: When Soniqua was about to exact her revenge on Mario for killing Sonic, Mario easily distracts her with peanut butter and bread trapping her in an electrified cage in the process.
  • Word-Salad Humor: "AVOCADO!"
  • You No Take Candle: "SONIQUA WANT ICE CREAM!"

Voiced by: Mike Parker

Unlike the friendly Kirby, this incarnation of Kirby is a psychopath. He murders innocent creatures and is known to randomly eat anything. In Season 4, he becomes a famous movie director and tries to help Sonic out.

  • Affably Evil: Downright friendly towards Sonic and the others, despite being a mass murderer.
  • Ascended Extra: Had his role notably expanded halfway through Season 4, where it's shown he became a movie director and wanted to make a movie based on Sonic's life.
  • Ax-Crazy: He loves to murder way too much.
  • Bad Boss: In Season #4, whenever a Waddle Dee arrives to give Kirby a drink, Kirby murders them.
  • The Big Guy: When Dr. Eggman was assigning roles to everyone before robbing Casino Zone, he gives the role "The Muscle" to Kirby. Considering Kirby is one of the most effective fighters in the series being a murderous psychopath (next the Soniqua), this is understandable. Ironic as Kirby is the smallest of the characters.
  • Bloody Hilarious: Beats innocent creatures until blood is spewing out of them.
  • Catchphrase: "LOVE IT!" but only in Season 4.
  • Creator Killer: In-Universe; After becoming a movie director in Season 4, he decides to make a movie based on Sonic and Tails' lives. However, the film turned out to be such a flop that he got kicked out of Hollywood.
  • Curbstomp Battle: Any battle Kirby has been in has been a total asskicking in his favor. His foes are either swallowed whole or beaten to death with an umbrella.
  • Demoted to Extra: After being an Ascended Extra in Season 4, Kirby's role became increasingly smaller, only getting a passing mention in Season 5 in the episode "Falco", one line and appearance in Season 6, and just one major appearance (plus a cameo in the finale) in Season 7. Kirby has two appearances in Season 8 but not only are they both brief but he just has one single line in the whole season.
  • Extreme Doormat: After weaning off murder, he becomes very depressed and just puts up with other's shit. Doesn't last very long however.
  • Fat Bastard: Not exactly fat, since Kirby is traditionally known to be literally round. In Season 4, Kirby has shown to slimmed down after becoming a director, instead now resembling a dildo.
  • Off the Wagon: After being run out of Hollywood, he spent time in a temple to stop murdering people. After Sonic and Tails makes him murder just one more person, he goes on a spree.
  • One-Hit Kill: Get swallowed by Kirby, you're dead.
  • Swallowed Whole: One of his preferred murder methods. Unlike in the games where the enemies swallowed by Kirby are turned into stars and respawn off-screen, people who are swallowed by Kirby is this series are straight up dead. Just ask Taizo Hori and Princess Potato.
  • Token Evil Teammate: While Sonic and the gang aren't what you would call heroes, Kirby is a straight-up psychopath.
  • Yes-Man: In Season 4, he loves everything Sonic and Tails say, but sometimes immediately goes back on that.

    Gilius Thunderhead 
Voiced by: Mike Parker

A very incompetent and unpredictable ally, Thunderhead can get on anybody's nerves. Sonic meets him and he orders Sonic to have sex with Tyris, which Sonic finds disgusting. Even though this backfires, Thunderhead seems to like Sonic enough to help him against Mario's Mafia. He had a temporary stay at Sonic's mafia office, but once the crew started drifting away, Thunderhead got sent to jail after starting a bar and committing some crimes, and has gotten an obsession with "ass-wine" (putting a condom full of wine up his ass).

  • Anything That Moves: Is the most perverted and depraved character in the series (which is saying a LOT).
  • An Axe to Grind: Like in the games, he uses an axe as his Weapon of Choice.
  • And Then John Was a Zombie: Once again, due to his stupidity, he got zombified after a zombie bit him while having sex with her.
  • Ass Shove: His "ass-wine."
  • Basement-Dweller: Lives with his mom, apparently.
  • Bestiality Is Depraved: He gets humped by the Duckhunt dog at the end of "Pokemon", and he's clearly enjoying it. Then in Season 8, where he gets unwillingly humped by a polar bear, Thunderhead outright says he's lost track of the number of animals he's had sex with.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Is part of the group who saves Sonic and Tails from Mario and his mafia in Season 2.
  • Demoted to Extra: Initially a recurring character (albeit a small one), but from Season 5 onwards, he only ended up making cameos and one-shot appearances.
  • Groin Attack: Implied; apparently, there was a "teeth situation" with getting a blowjob from a zombie.
  • I Love the Dead: He was willing to have sex with a zombie. Which resulted in him turning into one.
  • Large Ham: Oh so very much. Even lampshaded to a degree in the blooper of his introductory episode.
  • Last-Name Basis: He's only referred to by his last name. In fact, his first name was never even said once.
  • Show Within a Show: He's the host of his own at-home show titled "Dr. Thunderhead's Prescription Love-Pad." It's... made very obvious that his advice just amounts to sexual harassment.
  • Sixth Ranger: Joins Sonic's gang for a while when he was in the mafia.
  • The Other Darrin: In-Universe; In Season 6, due to a time-traveling mishap, Thunderhead apparently made various public appearances as Sonic, to the point where he was considered the "real Sonic."
  • Unexplained Recovery: In Season 7, Thunderhead gets turned into a zombie. When he reappears in Season 8, he's not anymore.

Voiced by: Clint Gage

Link in this series has a "fabulous" personality. A bit scatterbrained, he's more concerned with fashion and margaritas than his actual job.

  • Abusive Parents: As a kid, his homophobic uncle evidently tried to force Link to be straight... Via some sort of sexual abuse.
  • Camp Gay: If his tone isn't obvious enough already.
  • Gayngst: As Young Link, he was depressed for having to repress his sexuality.
  • Nice Guy: Debatable, as he loves to mess around with Tails, but Link's one of the few characters in the series that's not a complete A-hole.
  • Show Within a Show: Serves as the host of "Link's Video Game Fashion Don't-sies", where he criticizes the fashion sense of various video game characters.
  • Skewed Priorities: Values margaritas over saving princesses. He also feels criticizing someone's outfit is worth getting beat up over.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: "MARGARITAS!!!" (though that would be Trademark Favorite Drink in this case)

Other Characters

    Dominique Wilkins 
Voiced by:

A former NBA Basketball player who played for the Atlanta Hawks, he is heavily featured on the poster that Sonic really likes to watch. After the poster's death in Season 2, Sonic orders the real Dominique Wilkins to be frozen in carbonite.

  • Chekhov's Gunman: After serving as the image of Sonic's much-beloved poster for the first two seasons, getting captured by Sonic himself who then froze him in carbonite in Season 3, and then disappearing completely afterwards, Wilkins returns as a plot essential character in the final season, where he turns out to be the Creator that the gang was searching for.
  • God: In a very big twist, he turns out to be this at the very last episode.
  • Killed Mid-Sentence: When he convinces Sonic to kill him.
  • Killed Off for Real: In a quite unceremonious way, really.
  • Running Gag: Sonic "watching" his poster was a running gag in the first and second season. To the point of being lampshaded in the Season 1 finale.
    Narrator: Remember that running joke? Kinda lost track of that one.
  • Shoot the Shaggy Dog: Quite literally; Sonic and the gang spend almost the entirety of the final season searching for the Creator of all video games, in order to know why he was tormenting them by messing with reality. In the very last episode, Sonic and Tails discovers that the Creator was Wilkins the whole time. However, he kills Wilkins before the duo could get any answers.
  • Spanner in the Works: Darth Vader unfreezes Dominique Wilkins from his carbonite prison easily in The War Part I, but in his blinded haze in Part II, he throws Vader into the Family Feud core reactor, killing him.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: After his poster is destroyed in the Season 2 finale, Sonic has the real Wilkins frozen in carbonite, only for Darth Vader to unfreeze him. Afterwards, Wilkins was never seen again. At least until the Season 7 finale.

    Princess Potato 
Voiced by: Stacey Silva

Princess Potato is a fanmade princess in the series, she has red hair & wears a blue dress she hails from a Mario knockoff game called Super Italian Labored Town (which doesn't exist), she knew Mario & his plan to rob Casino Zone, Potato is described as somewhat a whore *examples are shown in Peach, and Casino Zone: Part One * and she seems to be an alcoholic, and bossy. Her attitude was the reason why Sonic wanted her dead. She must've had millions of STD's because Kirby claimed he got gonorrhea in his mouth when he ate her, She later returns in Season 6 alive and still a drunk whore. She is revealed to be the President of the United States. In "Thunderhead" She steals the epoch to go time traveling and it causes Mario to come back.

  • Ascended Extra: Sorta kinda. Potato had a minor role in Season 3 until being eaten by Kirby. Then, she reappears in Season 6 with a slightly larger role becoming president and joining Mario as his love interest.
  • Ascend to a Higher Plane of Existence: In season 8, she becomes the new God.
  • The Alcoholic: Ooh yes! She's probably the one person that can give Sonic a run for his money.
  • Back from the Dead: She was eaten by Kirby in Season 3 but came back somehow in Season 6, presumably due to Sonic's time-hopping shenanigans.
  • Be as Unhelpful as Possible: Surprisingly subverted. Unlike with Peach, Potato gave Sonic and Tails info about Mario planning to rob from Casino Zone. Tails even lampshades this.
  • Captain Ersatz: Princess Potato is a parody. She says she comes from the Mario knockoff game, "Super Italian Laborer Town".
  • The Load: Always drunk and laying around doing nothing or sleeping.
  • Noodle Incident: When Soniqua sends Mario Bowser's decapitated head as a death threat with bad grammar, Mario asks Princess Potato "if she did this again", implying that this isn't the first time this has happened to him.
  • Official Couple: It's pretty clear that she and Mario are a thing considering she mentions how Mario would always like to have sex with her and brings him back to life in Season 6.
  • Serial Escalation: Went from being Mario's "side dish", to becoming the President of America, and then becoming the Creator of the Universe.
  • STD Immunity: Averted; Kirby claims he got gonorrhea from eating Potato, implying she may have had a lot of STDs
  • Swallowed Whole: Was eaten by Kirby in Season 3.

    Toe Jam & Earl 
Voiced by:

A pair of people who hire Sonic to apparently kill a bunch of people. Or at least, that's what Sonic thought, when in reality they were a hallucination of Sonic.

  • Ax-Crazy: All they do throughout the episode is throw random garbage at people approaching them.
  • Fat Bastard: Earl is quite chubby, to a point of where he was based around a full garbage bag.
  • Gonk: Neither of them look all that appealing when compared to Sonic and Tails.
  • Hero-Worshipper: Throughout their appearance, all they do is rain down praise upon Sonic for how cool he is.
  • Imaginary Friend: While they seem to be close friends with Sonic in their single appearance, in all reality they're just a garbage bag and broken chair imagined as real people.
  • Jerkass: They constantly hurl insults at all the people they're murdering.
  • Jive Turkey: Add in their Totally Radical attitude, and they come across as quite annoying to say the least.
  • Shattering the Illusion: Their lack of existence is quickly outed by Tails the second he brings up that Sonic murdered multiple people under the allusion that they were paying him to do it.

    Amy Rose 
Voiced by:

Amy Rose is a female Hedgehog that has a crush on Sonic.

  • Ass Shove: A beer bottle up Sonic's ass. And she drinks out of it.
  • Stalking Is Love: Crazy obsessed with Sonic in her episode.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: After a one-shot appearance in Season 3, a another secondary appearance in the movie theater at the end of Season 4. Amy doesn't reappear again until Season 6, apparently serving as some sort of secretary for Sonic after he travels back in time to make himself rich. However, she disappears once more afterwards with no explanation or acknowledgement. Though considering that Sonic and the gang kept screwing around with the space-time continuum, it's a safe bet that she was simply written out of the time period.

    Candy Kong 
Voiced by:

A female Kong who distributes TNT barrels in Donkey Kong Country.

  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: Manages to knock down mob boss crime lord Mario into a pit. It doesn't kill him though.
  • Fan Disservice: Sonic certainly thinks so considering he doesn't want to bang someone that's basically "Donkey Kong in a bikini." Candy's voice certainly doesn't help.
  • No Good Deed Goes Unpunished: Candy saves Sonic from Mario and instead of being rewarded with sex, Sonic rewards her by knocking her down the same pit saying that it still wasn't worth it.
  • Sex for Services: Candy was only willing to give away her TNT Barrels if Sonic has sex with her. He was eventually convinced to do so but Mario suddenly appeared.
  • Uncertain Doom: It is uncertain if Candy survived being knocked down the pit by Sonic. Mario is shown to climb back out unscathed (though he is Mario) but Candy isn't seen again in the series afterwards, she did reappear in the "Hedgehog For Hire" episode "It Begins" however.
  • Vocal Dissonance: Candy has a very masculine-sounding voice which is most likely a reason why Sonic is turned off by her.

Voiced by:

Bomberman (also goes by White Bomberman) is the main protagonist of his own series.

  • Character Death: Dies in his debut episode after Soniqua accidentally spits up bombs on him.
  • Happily Married: Is shown to have a wife who was obviously grieving his death.
  • Pet the Dog: Compliments Soniqua for disposing of the bombs and even gives Sonic a bonus for such a good job and even offers to buy him a drink. There was a reason why Sonic was quick to declare Bomberman as his new best friend.
  • Nice Guy: Hell yes! He is the only character in the series who isn't a complete asshole and treats Sonic very nicely.
  • Token Good Teammate: Let's face it: Bomberman is this for the entire series!
  • Too Good for This Sinful Earth: The single most pure-hearted character in the show died in his only appearance.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Gives a small one to Sonic for forcing Soniqua into eating bombs. Once he realizes she is okay, Bomberman compliments her.

Eggette is Eggman's daughter & main antagonist of the eighth season of Hedgehog For Hire. Despite the fact that she originated from Sonic Mania, inhabiting the sprite of the Spider-Mobile boss, her existence was entirely influenced by fanon. When the game got burned down, she left in search of her father. Being from a different Sonic universe altogether, she is under the misconception that Eggman is an evil genius and that Sonic is her bitter rival. As such, she is hellbent on taking over the world.
  • Arc Villain: She is the main antagonist of Season 8, starting with the third-fourth episode where she wanted Eggman to go back into villainy again.
  • Ax-Crazy: She is shown killing two villains from Streets of Rage by using her Skin Shredder machine, by ripping the skin off their bodies.
  • Canon Foreigner: The Eggette that appears in the series originally came from the fanon of Sonic Mania, since the Eggman sprite of Spider-mobile Boss resemble Eggman if he had a daughter & she was added into the world after Sonic Mania was destroyed by Sonic & Tails.
  • Character Death: She was presumably killed when Soniqua spitted on a bunch of fire on to her.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: Her presumed death in the season finale of Season 8, since she was burned alive by Soniqua.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Played With; Eggette rivals Mario as the series' most competent and bloodthirsty villain, but she still has plenty of comical moments since she's practically Surrounded by Idiots.

Mario and His Mafia

Voiced by: Clint Gage

Once a princess saving plumber, now a high-end Mob boss. After Tails borrows money from Mario to bail Sonic out of jail, Sonic has to play hitman for the mob. After Sonic accidentally fails a mission and then lets Luigi get ran over on the following mission, Mario sets out to kill Sonic. Mario sends his Mafia friends to kill Sonic, but Sonic's friends help Sonic out and Sonic kills Mario, taking over the mafia. In Season 6, Princess Potato goes back in time and revives Mario, who wants revenge on the hedgehog.

  • Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking: Wanted to kill Sonic for destroying his business, letting Luigi get hit by a bus, and programming his DVR so it records each episode of Bachelor Pad like three different times. The latter of which he considers the worst of the three.
  • Accidental Hero: Kills Sonic, but doing so inadvertently brings world peace.
  • Almost Dead Guy: Takes the time to complain about deadly spikes appearing in a natural environment before dying.
  • Arch-Enemy: To Sonic, naturally. Especially after Sonic inadvertantly got Luigi killed and killed the man himself a little later after that.
  • Arc Villain: Of Season 2 and the second half of Season 6.
  • Ass Shove: In the Season 7 finale, Sonic uses his newfound powers to do this to Mario, with one of the statues in the background.
  • Back from the Dead: In Season 6, he gets revived due to Princess Potato travelling back in time.
  • Benevolent Boss: Was willing to go back in time in order to bring back to life his crime pals. Especially since they follow Mario's orders without hesitation.
  • The Don: Runs a mafia business.
  • Defeat Means Friendship: In Season 3, his ghost is pretty okay with Sonic ruling the mob. Averted in Season 6.
  • Enemy Mine: Eggette taking over the world doesn't really mesh well with Mario and his mafia, so he temporarily forms one with Sonic. However, once she's taken care of, Mario remains enemies with Sonic.
  • Heel–Face Turn: In Season 3, he briefly appears as a ghost and seemed to be in content with Sonic running his mob. In Season 6, however, not so much.
  • Hero Killer: Successfully kills Sonic (for awhile) in Season 6.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: In Season 6, he fires out the Bullet Bowser to kill Soniqua. However, it's too slow and it explodes on him shortly after he forgets about it.
  • Knife Nut:
    Sonic: Since when do you carry a knife?!
    Mario: What am I supposed to do, jump on your head?
  • Pragmatic Villainy: In Season 8, he still hates Sonic, but he helps him stop Eggman and Eggette's attempted takeover of the video game universe.
  • Taught by Experience: Upon his revival, he kills Sonic with a gun instead of resorting to taunting, knowing that was part of what killed him last time.

Voiced by:

Mario's younger brother who also works as part of his mafia.

  • Back from the Dead: Is bought back to life by a time traveling Mario in Season 6.
  • Big Brother Worship: Implied. Luigi did state that he still loves Mario despite him being a glory hog. However, Luigi was very high at the time. Though, Mario does love him back.
  • Character Death: After getting high off of licking Frogger, Luigi's jumps into the middle of the street and is quickly ran over by a bus.
    • Dies a second time when Soniqua spits lava on him.
  • Morality Pet: Appears to be one for Mario considering Mario is willing to not only kill Sonic, but also assemble as many other villains as he can to help him, to avenge Luigi's death.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Luigi isn't too bright for wanting to get high off of Frogger but doing so right beside the freaking street?

    Taizo Hori 
Voiced by:

The main character from Dig Dug, he is a part of Mario's mafia.

  • Cruel and Unusual Death: How he kills the monsters (by crushing them to death with rocks or pumping their stomachs full of air until they explode). Even Sonic found this to be disturbing.
  • The Extremist Was Right: He was right when he said that the monsters would bring carnage if allowed to roam free.
  • Irony: Sonic tells him he should meet Kirby, as both of them would get along for being psychopaths who seemingly like to kill monsters for fun. When Kirby meets him in The Battle: Part 2, Kirby proceeds to eat him.
  • Jerkass: Probably more of a jerkass than Sonic himself.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: Taizo was correct in assuming that the Pookas and Fygars would cause mass destruction if they're let free (I.E. raping an entire village), but that didn't stop him from attempting to murder Sonic just because he's washed-up.
  • Revenge: Mario enlists him knowing that he and Sonic had beef with each other.
  • Swallowed Whole: How he met his fate by Kirby.

    Bowser Koopa 
Mario's Original Arch Nemesis, despite this he is a member of Mario's mafia.
  • Boom, Headshot!: Earthworm Jim shoots him in the head in Season 2.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: Soniqua uses his head as a death threat in Season 6... it's pretty gruesome when you view it at first.
  • Killed Offscreen: By Soniqua.
  • Off with His Head!: Soniqua kills Bowser and mails his head to Mario as a death threat.
    • Mario thinks Princess Potato did this at first though.

    Mike Tyson 
He is a Boxer & Villain in Punch-Out!!, he is a member of Mario's mafia.

The main protagonist of Kid Icarus who later joins Mario's mafia due to his hatred for Sonic.
  • Back from the Dead: Is later bought back to life by Mario but remains in his eggplant form.
  • Baleful Polymorph: Is transformed into an eggplant by the Eggplant Wizard and remains that way for the rest of the series.
  • Face–Heel Turn: Was the main protagonist of his game thus making him a hero. However, he joins Mario's mafia to help him kill Sonic.
  • A Fate Worse Than Death: To Pit being an eggplant is like "being jammed inside your own asshole" which sucks considering even when he was brought back, he was still an eggplant.
  • Jerkass: Honestly, Sonic would've helped Pit if Pit wasn't so pushy about him needing a nurse when the former just want to rest for a few minute. Pit went from politely asking Sonic to get him a nurse to demanding him to bring him one (even calling a Sonic an "asshole" in the process).


Blanka is a character from Street Fighter. He later joins Mario's mafia to kill Sonic.

  • Back from the Dead: Was revived by Mario in Season 6.
  • Face–Heel Turn: Was a good guy in his series but turned evil after joining Mario's side in order to kill Sonic.
  • Shock and Awe: Of course. His main attack is getting close to others and shocking them with his body.
  • Shout-Out: In "Street Fighter", due to his green skin and beastly tendencies, Sonic referred to Blanka as "Shrek".

    Dr. Wily (Mafia) 
The main antagonist of Mega Man who is part of Mario's mafia. Supposedly a completely different character from the one who appears in Mega Man Dies at the End.
  • Ambiguous Situation: This Dr. Wily (who is 8-bit) and the one (who uses his Wily Wars sprite) that appeared in the other series were both implied to be the same person (even the Facebook page saying that Dr. Wily just suffered a head injury instead of dying), but after said series ended, that Dr. Wily was Exiled from Continuity and this one was easily killed by Soniqua.
  • Assist Character: When Mario's mafia temporarily sides with Sonic and Co to take on Eggette, he can call forth his Robot Masters (also 8-bit) to fight, which includes Bomb Man (also silent).
  • Retraux: Like a lot of Mario's mafia goons, he's depicted as 8-bit.
  • Silent Antagonist: Unlike the other Wily, this one doesn't talk at all.

    General "Space Dog" Pepper 
Voiced by:

A character from Star Fox, he gives out space missions Sonic & Co. to do.

In Season 3, Tails serving as the mafia leader temporarily sends Eggman and Earthworm Jim to get a bunch of cash and cocaine from El Padrino. However, it seriously backfires as El Padrino decides to keep the two for entertainment and the two love the cocaine so much they decide to stay there. In Season 4, Sonic takes the two back, but El Padrino sends the "Marmosets", the coke whores on him, but Sonic easily takes them out and El Padrino lets them go.

  • Affably Evil: As long you don't piss him off, El Padrino is a pretty fun guy to hang with. He decided to keep Eggman and Jim around finding them to be funny and even lets Sonic and them go after the former defeats his coke whores. Though he does admit he's always high.
